January 29 1917
Well here we are at last, ladies and gentlemen. America is waking up.
America is waking up to the shocking sight of itself in the mirror provided by Mssrs Trump and Bannon and– surprise, surprise– much of America doesn’t like what it sees.
America and Americans and the thuggo halfwits they call “the troops” slaughtered and tortured and napalmed their way through SE Asia back in the day, but America is shocked by Mssrs Trump and Bannon because that was only 4 million non-white folks that died.
America and Americans have funded and trained and armed and provided tactical support for death squads and rightwing insurgents bent on overthrowing popular governments throughout Latin America, but America is shocked by Mssrs Trump and Bannon because banana republics are like that, don’t you think?
America is missing its most recent President because he glided through 8 years with dignity and grace and a lovely family and America just loves to watch that kind of reality TV while the thugs are out acting on the orders of President Dignity-Grace, killing kids and sustaining brushfire wars wherever The Dignity decides.
But America is shocked by Mssrs Trump and Bannon because one or both of them seems to think that all the hiding of what Amerika really is is no longer necessary and so might as well let it all hang out.
So fuck you all America. Let’s see how you like it.
